Looking for some classic card games or toys? How about some unusual board games or trade card games? Located in Carytown, One Eyed Jacques is a local business that carries board games, role playing games, miniatures, Disc golf, Chess and other puzzles.
With the holiday season upon retail stores like One Eyed Jacques, they have seen an increase in the purchase of certain holiday gifts. One classic gift that always sells is the board games that the store has to offer.
“Settlers of Catan has been my hottest board game for close to 15 years now,” Joe Starsja, store manager, said. “The object of the game is to build civilization on the island of Catan. And Ticket to Ride is a railroad game, that’s one way to describe it. Basically, you’re trying to get to one train station to another.”
Another hot seller at the store is different types of yoyos. Classic and light up ones can be purchased at the store.
“I think those too are going to be hot this Christmas,” Starsja said. “We’ve been selling a ton of them all year. We’ve noticed a large spike in yoyos this year.”
Last but not least, trading card games make great gifts. One Eyed Jacques offers a large supply of “Magic: The Gathering” trading cards. Either trading card games include Pokémon and Dragon Ball Z.
“Magic: The Gathering is a trading card game,” Starsja said. “People collect and trade the cards. Then you make a deck and you play other people. This is one of the first trading card games. Pokémon was published by the same company when it was really hot.”
